To run the editor locally, you must first install the dependencies and then launch a local web server. We assume you have yarn installed.

Local Testing & Debugging
The editor is useful for testing if you are involved in Vega and Vega-Lite development. To use Vega, Vega-Lite, Vega Datasets, or Vega-Embed from another directory on your computer, link it into vendor. For this, run
yarn link in the directory of the library that you want to link. Then, in this directory run
yarn link <name of library>, e.g.
yarn link vega.
For example, to link Vega, run
cd VEGA_DIR yarn link cd VEGA_EDITOR_DIR yarn link vega
